Marijuana Cultivation in Residential Condominiums- Ontario Real Estate Association

Denise Lash
Publication date:

Article Summary: 

The Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) has expressed concerns about the upcoming legalization of marijuana in Canada and the potential cultivation of marijuana in residential properties, including condominium buildings. OREA is worried that the government will not be able to enforce the limit of four marijuana plants per household for personal use, and medical marijuana users may be able to grow more than four plants. OREA is also concerned about health and safety risks posed by even small-scale marijuana cultivation, such as mould and fungi, structural damage, and the release of dangerous chemicals. OREA has recommended five action plans, including restricting the number of plants per household in units consisting of less than 1,000 square feet to one plant. OREA encourages consumers to contact their Member of Parliament if they agree with its concerns and recommendations. Condominium corporations are urged to pass rules restricting marijuana use and cultivation in condominium units and to support OREA's efforts.
